When Calvin Coolidge is mentioned, a few stereotypes come to mind — quiet, if not silent; frugal, if not cheap; dignified if not wooden. This work of local history describes the thirtieth president's seven homes in Northampton, Massachusetts, the people he roomed with, and neighbors he encountered — set within the context of the small New England city where they lived. Which stereotypes are true or did those who knew him in this intimate way have a completely different view?
